The Thrift Shop at Carroll Hospital Center

Location: Washington Road and Stoner Avenue, Westminster

Architect: CLSI, Westminster

Description: The hospital expects to convert an existing building into a commercial thrift shop. All access will be from the existing Hospital Drive. Volunteers have assured neighbors that they will keep the former residence looking like a home and they will make no changes to the building's exterior. Volunteers plan to staff the shop and sell donated items to raise money for hospital projects. The 1.1-acre site will have a paved parking area. The shop will limit hours for accepting donations and will staff a drop-off area behind the building.

Status: The plan is approved contingent on hospital entering into a public works agreement with the county. For more information, call the county Planning Department at 410-386-2145.

Objections/comments: Residents have asked the county to address their concerns about increased traffic.
